Sapporo Sushi Superstar: Sushi Dokoro Arima


One of the best sushi restaurants in Hokkaido, Arima should be on everyone's Hokkaido hit-list. The majority of the fish used are locally sourced from Hokkaido, providing a sushi experience that can't be found elsewhere in Japan.

Feel free to follow favy!

One Michelin Star Seems Like Too Few!

Arima is among an elite few sushi restaurants in Hokkaido with a Michelin Star! It uses local ingredients and serves some of the most scrumptious sushi anywhere. It's no surprise, therefore, that the restaurant is packed every night of the week.

An Omakase for the Ages

Hmm... I think I'll try the... omakase course.

Actually, that's the only thing on the menu! The omakase(chef's choice) course here is a reasonable 13,000 yen, and includes 6 tsumami dishes, a steamed item, 9 pieces of sushi, egg, and a soup dish. Arima locally sources its seafood as much as possible, and the effort shows. The seafood is of superb quality, and the straightforward sushi accentuates the local, Hokkaido freshness. By the end of the course, your tummy will be happily filled, and you will be grinning ear-to-ear.

Great Sake

If you're the drinking type, ask for a recommendation of sake to go with your meal. There are some delicious options on the sake menu that are all very reasonably priced. Arima sushi + sake = happiness.

Cozy Atmosphere

A certain level of quality is to be expected of a Michelin-starred restaurant, and Arima doesn't fall short. It is not at all extravagant, but the interior is warmly lit and cozy. It's clear that every detail has been thought out, and you feel welcome to be there.


Sushidokoro Arima is located 7 minutes away from Susukino Station, in Sapporo. As mentioned above, it is extremely popular, so booking in advance is a must (unless you're really lucky).

Good luck, and happy Sushi-ing!
I live in west Tokyo and spend most of my time thinking about food or going bouldering.
